Stars School & Learning Center
Be a Star in our warm, welcoming community where children, grades 1 – 5 with learning differences can thrive!
Stars School & Learning Center, a private nonprofit school planning to open in early 2024, will be designed for children grades 1 – 5 with language-based learning differences, like dyslexia and co-occurring conditions, including ADHD. Our day-school, the first of its’ kind on Boston’s South Shore, will offer a unique experience for students, with average to above average intelligence, whose diverse learning styles may not be leveraged by a traditional academic setting.
Under the direction of Dr. Jennifer Curtis, Chief Executive Officer of South Shore Stars and former Superintendent of Weymouth Public Schools, and a faculty of learning disability specialists, each student will be nurtured academically, socially, and emotionally.
Each student will have access to:
- A comprehensive learning plan that links specific diagnostic information, with specialized instruction, modified curricula and other related services (e.g., occupational therapy, counseling, speech therapy).
- Assistance using state-of-the-art materials and methods to address specific learning differences by Orton-Gillingham trained and certified teachers and staff.
- Individualized tutoring to assist students in meeting their individual academic goals.
- A South Shore School that values building confidence, friendships, and a love of learning.
We believe that students learn best when instruction is direct, sequential, multi-sensory, and addresses individual strengths and differences. Our approach to education is designed to help students reach their full potential. From our curriculum to our class sizes, everything we do is grounded in scientific research and decades of experience and evidence-based methods.
Along with our day-school program we also offer additional programs for our students such as enrichment opportunities, summer programs and afterschool activities.
